The Douglas County sheriff’s office is proud to announce its
newest vehicle to the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division, the Youth
Education and Safety in Schools program.
Utilizing drug asset seizure funds, at no tax expense to the
citizens of Douglas County, the office acquired a 2008 Chevrolet
HHR that has been graphically enhanced to display and promote the
newly created Youth Education and Safety in Schools program that
will kick off in August for the 2009/2010 school year.
The program, a collaborative effort between the Douglas County
School District, the Douglas County Sheriff’s office, the Castle
Rock and Parker Police departments demonstrate our continued
commitment to the youth of Douglas County and the importance of
positive learning experiences in the lives of our youth.
The Youth Education and Safety in Schools features many programs
for our youth to include Text-A-Tip, a program in our high schools
that allows students to text the sheriff’s office and the Douglas
County Schools, safety and security concerns regarding their
schools. Also starting in August of this year, the program will
focus on our middle schools by offering innovative class
presentations instructed by officers and teachers covering topic
areas such as Internet/cyber safety, peer pressure, bullying, drug
and alcohol resistance, and teen suicide prevention. Due to the
ongoing effort of law enforcement and the schools, all Douglas
County middle school students will be able to participate.
Sheriff Dave Weaver, the sheriff’s office, the Douglas County
School District, and the Castle Rock and Parker Police Departments
understand the importance of investing in the youth of our
community. Equipping our youth with additional knowledge and
resources will only assist them in making positive life choices,
resulting in a safer and stronger community.
